As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi All.

I'm trying to create a synonym based on uploading a spreadsheet. I open the file, click the tab I want, and then get the following error:

(FOC1544) Syntax error: %1

I then went back and tried to view the data using the "Show" under the display, and then get another error:

"(FOC1544) Syntax error: SYNONYM _edatemp/data FOR C:\ibi\srv81\dm\edatemp\foccache\ht000325020\upload\ma
(FOC205) THE DESCRIPTION CANNOT BE FOUND FOR FILE NAMED: _EDATEMP/DATA
BYPASSING TO END OF COMMAND "

I haven't the faintest what is going on. I used the default options. Any thoughts?

hi max,

can you attach the sample spreadsheet file that you are trying to load.

following are my recommendations which you have to check in the "preparation options" menu in the ribbon. also attached screenshot
1. field delimiter.
2. field enclosure.
3. header row.
4. scan all rows(optional)

finally you can try to convert the format to csv and see if that works.

Update: The problem was solved by removing all spaces from the filename.
